What is often not shown in fictional TV stories is the meticulous work that detectives do in their everyday jobs. To gather evidence in criminal cases, they interview and interrogate, examine documents, observe suspects, and finally – when they've cracked the case – arrest the culprit. Readers are invited along with the crime-solving team in this valuable volume and are encouraged to think like a detective to nab a criminal. Key vocabulary and essential concepts will make readers appreciate and admire this cool career.
